TV actor Ravi Dubey says megastar Amitabh Bachchan inspired him to take up hosting. Ravi, who holds a degree in engineering, started working for commercial advertisements. He shared screen space with Big B in the first advertisement -- which went live.
"My first TV commercial went on air during 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'. Watching Amitji on screen was an absolute delight," Ravi said in a statement to IANS.
"That's when I knew I wanted to become a host too," added the "Jamai Raja" actor.
After hosting "Rising Star (Season 2)", Ravi will be seen hosting "Sabse Smart Kaun" on Star Plus. The show will go on air on Monday.
"Sabse Smart Kaun?" will celebrate smartness in common people.
Meanwhile, Ravi Dubey, who is married to actress Sargun Mehta, says he is not planning to start a family anytime soon. The couple completed eight years of togetherness earlier this year.
"We both are doing very well in our respective careers. And are in a very good space. We are not planning to go the family way, just yet. It'll happen when the time is right," Ravi said in a statement to IANS.
